THis is part of Oakland's plan to lose games, make trades, and start winning in Vegas. DOn't fault Gruden, fault Mark Davis for giving Oakland the MIDDLE FINGER. Look at how many games he don't want to play in JOKEland and is POUTING to not have played in San Francisco, when Raiders wanted to play in SF GIants park.

I’ve been having a particular perspective in mind ever since I’ve heard of this but I feel the helmets that are currently “okay’d” by the nfl prevent the player from feeling head trauma, to a degree that almost masks the intensity of each hit. Antonio claims “vision” is of his greatest concern in which I think his older helmet gave him a sense of what was being received to the head after each and every play. take into fact that adrenaline could also be a factor and you have a recipe for an underlying disaster. plus the nfl is all about the stars on the field, they need to keep them on the field to achieve that mass appeal🧐

He should be knocked for the helmet issue. He knew this was coming and was given several chances to pick one.

This man went to war for years with the same helmet an had 1 head injury off a cheap shot, he wants to keep it and it's a distraction? I feel like people are just attacking him just because of how he handled the Steelers situation.

I see what he means, he just went about it crazy asf. Then again, we can’t say what we’d do in that situation. In fact, he’s willing to lose his career over that helmet. So, it must mean something to him.

What drama? We all know damn well Gruden approved the hot air balloon and the helicopter. And AB isn't the first guy to hurt himself during cryotherapy. Won't be the last. His feet will heal in 2-3 weeks and he won't miss any game time. Also, no one mentions the fact that Brady also objected to the helmet change. AB just took it as far as he could through appropriate channels. And in the end, AB won by getting what he wanted (the OK to use the same type of helmet IF made within the last 10 years). So again, what drama? Find me one source where AB said, "If I don't get my way with this helmet issue, I will retire". Yeah, doesn't exist. A bunch of media manipulation to create headlines during the offseason. SOS.

AB'S production is only part AB and the rest of the team from the quarterback to the offensive line and blockers who enabled his production!

Stephen A. Smith knows what hes talking about. This other guy is just rambling on about nonsense trying to back brown up when in reality they both just look stupid. He went from a 2 TIME SUPERBOWL WINNING QB to a qb who has never even seen a playoff field. Foh with that hes gonna put up number he ain't gonna put up s-it! Bet.

Short term memory- ask Seau and Webster about NFL and Helmets. The media always controlling the narrative and the masses.

Interesting, that people are reporting that Antonio Brown lost his grievance with the NFL. In the end, he gets to wear his preferred helmet for 3 more years, that he wasn't allowed to wear before he filed his grievance. Who won the appeal again?

Stephen A looks like a James bond villain ( Halfstash black ) he confuses his victims with sentences filled with 7 syllable words. Once they are in a confused daze he blows up their brains with talk about the NY nicks...he could possibly be the main threat in hobbs and shaw 2
